After the dire predictions, #hellastorm, the monstrous Bay Area storm, turned out to be far less horrendous than we expected, but any excuse for warm breakfast fare was welcome. And I've kept up the habit, even though the drought is back and the days are sunny and cool.
My favorite thing for breakfast nowadays is some warm apple compote with a few bits of dried fruit for taste. I make it in the slow cooker, though I'm sure you could make a very decent version on the stove. Here's how I make enough for the two of us:
handful of raisins
2 dried apricots or mangoes
In the evening, chop apples into cubes and thinly slice apricots or mangoes. Place everything in slow cooker, cover with water, and turn on to "low." Wake up in the morning to a fantastic breakfast.
